Editorial Reviews

Bish Bosch is Scott Walker's first studio album since 2006's The Drift. Scott began writing new material around 2009 - whilst also scoring the ROH 2's Duet For One Voice ballet - recording it sporadically over the following three years. The end result is Bish Bosch, a tauter but more colourful experience than The Drift, with greater emphasis on processed, abrasive guitars, digital keyboards and thick silences. For the cover art, Scott worked closely with painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett.

Third in a trilogy that included "Tilt" and "The Drift", "Bish Bosch" is less savage than its predecessor, but is again a work that will take many rotations to glean what there is to glean. In part more accessible, yet also sadder, this may be a swan song (let's hope not), and is a glorious one. I don't want to define it, even if I could. Best just to say it's a beautiful challenge.

If you are looking for something different this is you record. In the same line of the two last CD ( Tilt, Drift), this is more accessible The lyrics are beautiful and stunning . The music is a surprise. You can find everything , thousand of sounds, and incredible dark spirit. The voice is, like always, magic. If you like Scott Walker you will be foolish with this CD. Could be one of the best records of this years. Don't miss. Fascinating. The box include all the lyrics and a beautiful presentation. Scott Walker still in the top.

The album, I think, seems like a send up of Scott's two previous albums both of which I consider 5 star pieces of artistry.

The same musical language is here turned into cliche, (apart from Corps de Blah and the last track both of which I like a fair bit).

Sadly, in addition, we get lame cliched metal guitar riffs which seem like add-ons greatly detracting from the music, and boring programmed-sounding electronic riffs. The album is just so musically clunky in the sense of being stylistically incoherent. And the poetry which forms the lyrics is similarly sadly lacking too.

I could be totally wrong but I wonder if Scott's modus operandi was to be "expressionistic" (judging by the graphics of the sleeve and accompanying booklet). If so, I think this was self-defeating as it seems too planned and self-conscious rather than a vigorous and inspired spontaneous outpouring.

So for far superior albums by Scott in the same exploratory vein I suggest the following in descending order of merit:
Equal first: Tilt and Drift
Third: Climate of Hunter

And for a short (24 min) but sweet piece with no vocals evoking a gamut of emotions from gentle humour to foreboding to pathos to intense frenzy to a complex mix of feelings: And Who Shall Go to the Ball? And What Shall Go to the Ball? Evocative, for me, of a Shostakovich symphony and equally as powerful.

These four are essential to my recorded music collection.

As if the drift wasn't out there enough, Scott walker topped it with this album, proving that there are no boundaries in his genius mind.

For many years that I can probably remember, but I think 45 would be exact, I have followed faithfully the progress of this singer & songwriter. Originally with the 60's group Walker Bros, with hits "Make It Easy On Yourself" & "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" I was intrigued by the vocals and the style of the lead singer, Scott Walker. Throughout the period, from 1965 and threw the remainder of the 60s, all of the 70s, 80s, and to the 90s, 00s, and now 2013, his sublime vocalizations and imaginative and beautiful lyrics from so many solo LPs, the best his 1st four, "Scott" "Scott 2" "Scott 3" & "Scott 4" which are masterpieces of lyrics, song, and the art form which is this man's amazing voice. Through the years, as with so many artists, they change to keep pace with the times, and move on to new thoughts, ideas, and a sense of their own style. Mr. Walker no different, except that the minimalist seemed to take hold of him from the 1980s with "Climate to Hunter" and then returning in the 1990s with "Tilt" which is a provocative and seemingly masterful assult on the human condition and his own psyche, with hopes of more to come. Not so, unfortunately, the following decade in the 2000s "Drift" made me wonder where Walker had gone mentally, his focus unclear and disjointed. Again, on the last one, above title, I am unclear as to why it is necessary to make stiff and unusual, overdone and disconnected thoughts and put them on a CD. I realize poets are good for this, many I sometimes like, admire; perhaps if Scott Walker was more true to his new 'form' it would make sense. But on 'Bish Bosch' I'm afraid he's lost me. Perhaps the younger generation can understand and blend in to his mental nuances, but as I move on in my years I much prefer down to earth, common sense, and those things in life that give me something more melodic to listen.

Thanks.

I'm writing this the day after its released so I can only give initial thoughts. From the first and so far only sitting, it seems a logical next step in the progression from Climate to Tilt to The Drift and now we're here with Bish Bosch.

I'd say it's equally as challenging (and literally thrilling) to listen to as The Drift but even less "musical" for lack of a better term. Certainly less musical and song-centric than Tilt.

In Bish Bosch, Scott Walker has widened and deepened his sonic palette using more "other-than-musical" sounds to build the foundation of much of the music here. And those sounds create a support for the words which really seem to be the focus here.

As far as i can tell, the centerpiece (for me at least) is the nearly 20 minute long "SDSS1416+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)". Whose title makes more sense once you read the liner notes.

Once again, Scott Walker seems to have built a truly unique and dare I say epic sound sculpture with humor, darkness and great consideration. To me it sounds like a project built in great time, maybe over years, not months (However, i don't really know it went down).

Anyway, just some initial thoughts. If you're like me and truly love everything from Night Flights to The Drift, this will certainly hook you.
